We had two houses - sleeper in the shallows and day house in the deep. We did much better in the shallows. 4 of us brought our limit home of walleyes but were only able to catch 3 keeper saugers. Did the best in the morning on the shallows. Our alarm clock was the rattle reels, once one went off, time to get up and start fishing. There was an average to below average evening bite in the shallows. Day bite in the deep house didn't go too good - we maybe got 10 fish between 4 of us. We caught a total of 52 fish for the trip! It wasn't fast and furious but it was still fun just to be with friends and family.

There was one nice pike caught by a member in our group, the only pike caught matter of fact. Caught it on a tip-up right before dark. Was just getting ready to pull it up when it hit. See the pics below. It came in at right around 40 to 41 inches.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
